Talk about taking retro gaming to the next level. Target Stores will offer BigGames Home Video Arcade machines that will retail for less than $500 nationwide in November of 2005. Each unit plays 12 of the original arcade versions of the most popular Midway® games including: Defender®, Defender® II, Robotron®, Joust®, Bubbles®, Splatâ„¢, Sinistar®, Rampage®, Rootbeer Tapperâ„¢, Wizard of Worâ„¢, Timberâ„¢, and Satan’s Hollowâ„¢. The unit stands 62â€ tall and has an included, built-in, full color monitor. It comes with additional A/V inputs that allow (almost) any existing home video game system, DVD player, VCR or any other A/V product to be plugged in and viewed on the built-in monitor. I only have one question, where is the Galaga?
I’ll have to see about getting one of these. ;-) BTW, the reason Galaga isn’t on there is the same reason Galaxian, Pac-Man, and Space Invaders aren’t on there. Midway was only the American distributor. All of the mentioned were actually Namco games, aside from Space Invaders (which was a Taito game).
